Abstract

The puzzling reference by Thucydides, during his account of Demosthenes’ Aetolian campaign in 426, to the death of Hesiod, can be explained as an instance of foreshadowing through myth: Hesiod’s tragic end prepares the reader for the tragic consequences of Demosthenes’ decisions. A similar use of mythical foreshadowing in Herodotus is compared.
